Product Mailing List

Many have contacted me asking when planned products will be available. Progress has been slow but fear not, things are moving forward! In order to improve communication I’ve created a product mailing list through Mailchip (below). Don’t delay, subscribe today!

AMD Ryzen 3000 investigated

This is a brief summary with limited testing to highlight changes to memory and fabric behavior on Zen 2 (Matisse). As you’ve probably seen, Ryzen 3000 is capable of much higher memory speeds than previous generations. The main reason for this is added circuitry on-chip that allows running the memory clock (MCLK) asynchronous from the…

EVC2 status update

The EVC2 is soon ready for release and should be available in mid-June. It’s estimated to cost 35 USD without the OLED display which will be a 5 USD add-on. Quick specs 3x I2C headers working at 3.3-5.0V 1x UART header, TX 3.3V RX 3.3-5.0V 1x SPI header with on-board supply (0.8-3.6V) VMOD header for…

P80DB1L LPC Port 80 Debug Card

The P80DB1L card allows you to display motherboard debug information, even if there’s no such display on your motherboard. It uses an Altera/Intel Max V CPLD which decodes data sent to port 80 on the LPC bus, which is accessible on many motherboards using the TPM header. Pinouts of the card, cables and standard headers…

Radeon RX 480 Running 1700 MHz Core

After working out some quirks I finally got around to test the RX480 full out on LN2. It’s not incredible but not all bad. This specific card was not the best clocker to begin with so I think we can see up to 1800 MHz on a better sample. The highest validated result was done…

Read/Write Memory SPD With the EVC

Through an idea by Jake Crimmins at Corsair of using the EVC for programming the SPD of DDR3 memory modules, I’ve started working on an implementation of such a feature in the eVc software. I’ve tapped in to the memory SMBus interface and successfully read/written SPD data, simply put it works great. Currently I’m working…

New EVC Beta Software and Driver

The new new beta version (v1b3) of the EVC software is now available. Changes include added support for VRM controllers and graphical monitoring. This version supports: MSI GTX680/770 Lightning MSI GTX780 Lightning MSI HD7870 HAWK Generic VT1165 Generic uP6208 Generic NCP81022 It still needs more testing so if you have a supported graphics card please…
